(202) Younger sister route 4

Translator: Tseirp


It was the third time I thought that I was about to be done in by monsters.

The first time was when I first fought with Kobolds. At that time, I really thought I was about to die and was extremely desperate. Unlike killing rabbits which I didn’t feel anything, that was when I started considering battle as an exchange of lives. The fear of kill or be killed still occasionally haunt my dreams even now.

The second time was when I fought the Leviathan. That was when I felt my powerlessness. It shattered my confidence that I could do anything into pieces.

And now was the third time.

The octopus monster Gourmand.

I didn’t expect the monster that I thought I could defeat easily to retaliate. I was careless.

I didn’t think that a monster weaker than me could do anything to me.

Just like the proverb a cornered rat will bite a cat, you never know what a cornered monster will do.

” … That’s why I hate this monster.”

Miri said sulkily.

While having her whole body bathed in black ink.

That’s right, that Gourmand self-exploded the moment it sensed that it was about to be killed. Both Miri and I would be able to withstand a regular explosion. However, it wasn’t a regular explosion. I could say it was more of an ink bomb? The ink inside Gourmand’s body scattered throughout the entire room. There was almost no space to escape from it.

Furthermore, it self-destructed so I didn’t get any experience points. Like it was stepping on and kicking us while we were down.

“It stinks … just what exactly did it eat to become this smelly. Wait, it was the curry I made that it ate.”

“Onii, you can use Lifestyle Magic right? Please use Clean … I can’t even open my eyes.”

“I get it so stop hugging me when you’re all wet with ink!”

Even though she was a Demon Lord her previous life, doing such things really showed that she was just a girl.

I applied the Lifestyle Magic Clean on Miri and did the same on myself to clean us up.

The ink on not just our faces but also our clothes cleanly fell off.

“Onii, to be safe, apply Cure too. The Gourmand’s ink contains toxins too.”

“Really? … Ah, I heard that octopus ink has a type of strong toxin in it.”

Although squid ink could be used to make pasta.

“What now? Miri, do you want to challenge another Gourmand one more time? I can teach you how to cook this time?”

“It will take about three days for another Gourmand to appear once you defeat it. So we’ll have to give up.”

“I see, that’s a pity.”

“That is the pity here.”

Miri looked at the deep-fried cricket dish covered in ink and said.

“Even though I went through the trouble to make it.”

“No, that can probably still be eaten. Clean.”

I used Clean and removed the ink from the deep-fried cricket.

Then, I picked one and put it in my mouth.

The crunchy sensation spread throughout my mouth.

“Miri, although I understand that you want to bring out the ingredient’s taste, just deep-frying it can’t really be called cooking. If you devise a recipe to maybe deep-fry it with lemongrass or something, maybe the Gourmand will also recognize it as cooking?”

Well, even with that, I don’t think that it would actually want to eat it.

However, I can’t call myself an elder brother if I don’t eat the cooking my younger sister made wholeheartedly so I ate it but I crossed gazes with the cricket when I ate it.

Hah, Miri’s fondness for strange cooking has not changed at all.

“It’s just like Onii said. Although it’s appetizing enough just like this.”

Miri picked up two crickets and ate them just like that.

She chewed on the crickets and I could hear the crunchiness.

Then, Miri shoved the remaining crickets into my item bag as she pleased.

“Onii, you can eat them when you want to.”

“Ah … okay. Yup, thank you.”

I smiled bitterly as we exited the Gourmand room.


However, since there weren’t any monsters until this point, I was worried about the boss room.

“Miri, I want to exterminate some monsters so can we take a detour?”

“Of course. I shall see Onii’s true power.”

“Miri won’t be fighting with me?”

“But Onii’s 20 times experience would be meaningless if Miri defeats them right?”

Ah, that’s true.

I nodded.

I somehow felt like I was being used by my younger sister.


The room we arrived at under Miri’s guidance had huge seahorse-like monsters flying in the sky.

It seemed like the monsters had not noticed our presence.

“How are they able to fly?”

“Most fish-type monsters on land are capable of flight.”

” … It’s destroying my concept of fishes. Are there any points to take note of when attacking them?”

“Won’t Onii’s spell defeat them in a single shot? With Petit Thunder.”

“You’re right ― Petit Thunder!”

I took out the Asclepius staff and chanted my spell.

The lightning that flashed from the tip of the staff caught the seahorse-like monster.


【Ichinojo Leveled up】

【Light Magician skill: 「Light Magic II」has skilled up to「Light Magic III」】

【Dark Magician skill: 「Dark Magic II」has skilled up to「Dark Magic III」】

【Sword Saint skill: 「Sword Equip II」has skilled up to「Sword Equip III」】

【Sword Saint skill: 「Sword Afterimage」acquired】


“Onii, you leveled up?”

“Yeah. All my levels apart from Jobless leveled up. Light and Dark Magician reached level 6, Sword Saint to level 4 and Pugilist to level 61.”

” … Seriously amazing. Even Advanced Jobs can be leveled up that easily.”

“What about Miri?”

“Demon Lord didn’t level up but Commoner became level 4. Help me change job to Apprentice Mage after I level up a little more okay.”

“You’re fine with Apprentice Mage?”

“Yup. My magical power has mostly been sealed. Raising my MP a little more will widen the scope that I can transfer to so it’s convenient in various ways.”

I see. Apprentice Mage certainly has skills that raise maximum MP.


“Now that you mention it, I recall that Sheena entrusted me with a gem that is meant to seal the Demon Lord’s power but what should we do with that?”

I only thought of it now and asked Miri.

“Ah … Onii can hold onto that for now. It’s not like the seal can be undone even though we have the gem. We don’t know where the other three gems are anyway.”

“Another three huh.”

“Yup. And it seems like somebody took one of it away. Although it was located between Florence and Belasra. They left some mysterious message saying ‘Welcome to Centaur Labyrinth’ that didn’t serve as a clue but … what’s wrong, Onii?”

“N … nothing.”

Even though I denied it, that manner of speech felt familiar.

Or rather, there’s no doubt about it?

It was probably Jofre and Elize who left that ‘Welcome to Centaur Labyrinth’ message behind.

Doesn’t that mean they are holding onto a gem that seals the Demon Lord’s power?


As I was thinking, I sensed presences approaching us.

“Miri ― there.”

“Stop, Onii.”

Miri restrained me and looked towards the corner down the path that the presence was coming from.


A group dressed in silver armor ran pass.

It was a squad of about ten people. A person from that group turned towards us and called out.

“Squad Leader, I sense some presence in that direction.”

“Are they strong?”

“They are quite weak.”

“Then leave them be. Our goal has been achieved. We’ll head for the transfer circle.”

It seems like one of them had Presence Detection.

But, what did he mean by quite weak?

“(I used Status Forgery. The skill capable of altering status can even trick people with greater than Presence Detection II skill.)”

Miri said to me quietly.

“(Silent Room)”

I chanted and blocked the sound.

“Miri, who were those people?”

I asked in a normal tone.

“They seem to be a squad from the Church. I don’t know what they are doing here but we should let sleeping dogs lie.”

“A squad from the Church huh. They seem like an army.”

To me, they seemed like the Crusaders we had back on Earth.

  1. Guille

    Thanks for the chapter

  2. Cake

    Thank you! I’m still not going to disable AdBlock though.

    • Kenyth

      Eh?? That’s a little rude.

      Isn’t it fine to support them a little just by disabling adblock if you aren’t going to donate money?

    • Razel

      Eh, ads aren’t very intrusive here.

      • xiazixin

        the ads are killing me here, there are scam websites that track your IP and follow you around, I would start to disable my network after I back up my pc, and test with a virtual pc next week than should I decide to close my ads block.

        • What do you mean by track your IP and follow you around?

        • Sup

          Modern cyber security should make knowing your IP pointless except for active intusive attacks or tracking you like tracking cookies already do.

  3. BK

    Maybe theyre after the herbs too.. For monopolyzed i think

  4. Thanks for the chapter~Nya…

  5. RoySenou

    Thanks for the chapter!

    Don’t worry I don’t use adblock at all on any translation sites, adblock is for the weak.

    • richard

      until the ads become viruses (redirects, cryptocurrency miners, etc.)

  7. kazuma2015

    Thanks for the meals.^^..

  8. Thanks for the chapter.

    I disabled my adblocks for your site.

  9. natc

    Organized religion is always bad news!

  10. Magstzerp

    Harmless ads at the edge of the screen are fine, but I was just redirected while I was still in the middle of reading the chapter. And it wouldn’t even let me go back by using the back button.
    Moreover, my word press app froze and crashed after that.

    • Thanks for letting me know! I have disabled the ad that i suspect was the culprit so could you please help me check if it still happens?

      • Magstzerp

        Still there. What the heck is Something?

      • Magstzerp

        The GC V8C202 on the blue title bar of my WordPress app changes to something that starts with ‘’when the ad redirects me. I think it might be a sight address, but I can’t be sure on the WordPress app. It’s a page with a large green circle in the centre, though.
        If that helps narrow down the suspect.

        • Hey sorry to trouble you. Could you check again? Trying to narrow down the ad. Could you also let me know what’s your location and device if you don’t mind?

          • Magstzerp

            No problem.
            It doesn’t seem to happen anymore. So maybe you got it.

          • Magstzerp

            Location: India.
            Device: Lenovo vibe k5 note.

            Leaving messages on your site is becoming a task now. I wrote this message on your site once and after I had finished typing, I had to wait five minutes for all the words to appear in your message box. In the end I decided to just type in a notepad and copy paste the comment in your comment box.

          • Ryan

            I live in North America an I use an ISO iPhone and some time the website crashes

          • Thanks for letting me know! What do you mean that the website crashes? Does it freeze or it closes on its own?

  11. Fundle

    I always try a sight first whitelisted. I only ad you to ad blocker when i cant read cause the scroll its rendering so slow. Seriously you cant read anything. It’s annoying.

  12. gringar

    Thx for the chapter (is it possible to increase the release frequency to at least twice a week?)

  13. Abyssal

    Thank you for the chapter~

  14. Anon

    About the ads…

    Well, some of your ads keep playing a blank audio file on and off repeatedly, which, if you don’t know, turns off music in Android devices, so I kind of had to blacklist your site again, because I like listening to my musics.

  15. someone

    thanks for the chapter. I disabled adblocker. RIP to those who have problems and can’t disable them. Little sister cooking=iron stomach . :]

  16. The Butt Wizard

    I’ve whitelisted the site on all my devices, but the pages usually crashes a dozen times in the time it takes me to read a chapter on tablet. That’s not your fault and I know you probably can’t do much about it anyway, so I’ll be fine as long as I don’t need more time to comment. I just have to switch to my laptop when I want to reread it. I can just write the comment in a word processor and copy it.

    • Thanks for letting me know! I have disabled the ad that i suspect was the culprit so could you please help me check if it still happens?

  17. SFcipher

    Thanks for the treat.

  18. Afzidfhs

    yea dude you have some super cancerous ads that straight up redirect and kill your tab and can’t be backed out of. I basically can’t browse this site on mobile unless I disable JavaScript. Have it enabled to make this comment and it’s probably only a matter of time til the redirect hits.

    • Thanks for letting me know! I have disabled the ad that i suspect was the culprit so could you please help me check if it still happens?

  19. richard

    you need better ad providers. 15 minutes is too long for a page to load. if it was me, i would try not to use video/audio ads at all. ad provuders cant betrustex with videos/audio. im in the usa on a galaxy s6 edge using firefox beta. i gave plugibs that prevent redirects, so rhat might be why irts still loading…it is trying to rrdirect but cant

  20. richard

    after that comment i realised that my phone was beginning to overheat and lag due to the ads on your website (my phone returned to normal after leaving the webpage). i took you off whitelist. most of your ads are facebook ads… i really think one of your providers is taking advantage and using your site to mine for bitcoins now… normal ads dont do what these do

  21. Kazarine

    Crusaders eh…
    They won’t shout deus vult right?

  22. rooislangwtf


  23. Richard Clink

    where are all the comments going? my comments and a couple others just vanished!

    • richard

      thats weird…on my laptop the comments were gone, but in my phone they are there. sorry for the excess comments. thanks for the chapter!

  24. dragox

    dude, your noisy ads are a pain in the ass, thanks for the chap though

  25. Toonces

    Was I the only one who thought the ink destroyed their clothes and they showed zero shame about it? “But also our clothes cleanly fell off”

  26. CCaprice

    Thanks for the chapter.

  27. …why can Miri shove stuff into MC’s bags ? They are private tools, no one else can access them lest they kill the owner.

    I don’t quite like the church squad. They remind me of the country knights that started the labyrinth monster rampage back then (tho there’d be no point for that here). I guess they’re the one that killed every monster ?

  28. benibomb

    Thank you so much for the translations, don’t worry about the ads as i’d come to read it all the same (without blockers) even if there were 3 times as many
